Polemic Fast Fashion effects

“Fast fashion” is a term that alludes to reasonable rudiments and dispensable patterns. It has additionally been utilized as a term to portray apparel accumulations which depend on the latest fashion patterns. Quick design is “the pattern for form retailers to purchase their stock nearer to the season, and react to patterns as they rise.

why is fast fashion so bad for individuals and the earth?

here a few reasons:

 

  • Fast fashion is costly for you and our planet. Quick form is intended to be supplanted rapidly, not such a great amount by want but rather by require. Garments truly goes into disrepair winding up in landfills instead of influencing it to relegation to shops regardless of whether you give. In the U.S. just 10% of gave garments get exchanged. The rest surges landfills – we send 13 trillion tons of our garments to landfills in the U.S. alone where they sit for a long time leaving lethal chemicals and colors to taint nearby soil and groundwater. Our moderate mold group has discovered that putting resources into less higher quality garments really spares us cash on the grounds that each piece endures longer.

  • Fast fashion disempowers women. With quick mold you trap an age of young ladies into poverty. 75 million individuals are making our garments today. 80% is made by ladies who are just 18 – 24 years of age. It takes a piece of clothing specialist year and a half to acquire what a form mark CEO makes on their meal break. A greater part of them procure under $3 every day. The greatest corners quick form cuts are human. Modest garments are made by underage laborers entering the business as youthful as 14 to work long hard hours (an avg. of 14 hrs for each day in sweatshops) for low wages, while managing inappropriate behavior.

  • Quick design is a debacle for our planet. The generally unregulated beat and consume of quick design is putting excessively weight on our planet. 12.8 million tons of attire are sent to landfills in the US consistently. This is a football field filled 14 ft profound with garments. The mold business’ CO2 emanations are anticipated to increment by over 60% to almost 2.8 billion tons for each year by 2030. Fundamental cotton delivering nations like China and India are now confronting water deficiencies, and with water utilization anticipated to go up half by 2030, these cotton-developing countries confront the problem of picking between cotton generation and securing clean drinking water.

 

Our cash is the thing that influences the design world to go round. By disturbing business as usual, we have the ability to change things. When we purchase better we send advertise signs to change the framework for good. Is better to buy less clothes made by recycle materials that buy more cheap and bad quality clothes that few months later is going to be rubbish  and contaminate the planet. Planet is our house we do not have another place to go then we have to take care of our choices. thinking in our future and the future of the new generations .

Reciclando, ropa, medio ambiente

“Si realmente crees que el medio ambiente es menos importante que la economía, intenta aguantar la respiración mientras cuentas tu dinero” Dr. Guy Mc Pherson 

Cada año millones de dólares van a parar a la basura unas 100 toneladas de ropa usada, nuestra ropa habitual está hecha de 4 materiales básicos algodón, lana, seda y fibras sintéticas.

Las fibras sintéticas como el nylon, el perle, y la licra se obtienen de derivados del petróleo, y su fabricación genera una importante contaminación atmosférica.

Otro ejemplo es el poliéster es una fibra sintética, su producción genera CO2 y otros gases consume gran cantidad de agua y su catalizador es cancerígeno y tóxico para los humanos. Al lavarlo desprende fibras que van a parar a los ríos, al mar y a los peces que con todos esos tóxicos luego ingerimos.Este tipo de productos tarda mucho tiempo en descomponerse.

Además de la contaminación y toxicidad de los materiales tenemos el problemas de que genera la industria de la moda, se producen 150 millones de prendas anualmente. Suficiente para regalar un armario lleno de ropa a cada habitante del planeta.

Es verdaderamente preocupante esta situación debido al grado de contaminación lo que ayudan a empeorar la situación de calentamiento global. 

La pregunta es que podemos hacer para mejorar esta situación. Aquí algunas recomendaciones:

  • Aplicar las tres R (reducir, reutilizar, reciclar) esto significa comprar menos prendas, de mejor calidad y que nos gusten, comprar ropa de segunda mano y /o ecológica,
  • promover mercados de trueque y el Upcycling también conocido como supra reciclaje para crear productos que tienen un mayor valor que el que tenía el material original o lo que es lo mismo transformar residuos en objetos de valor.

Reciclar más que una decisión es una responsabilidad de cada individuo que habita en el planeta , no tenemos otro planeta a donde ir. Un pequeño cambio puede hacer una gran diferencia. Las generaciones del futuro lo agradecerán.

Hasta pronto
